It would also be considerably easier if you actually did any
homework--including reading my posts for content instead looking
for things to nitpick at.
I'm talking about very early prebiotic chemistry. We've known
since the mid-nineties that certain fairly simple chemicals
exhibit the property of evolving by mutation and natural
selection. Some of them even appear similar to some of the parts
of RNA and DNA. That's all I'm saying for now.
And yes, evolution works differently for a species of rapidly
expanding population than for one of restricted population. For
one thing, there is, I believe, a non-linear relationship to the
number of homozygous recessive's found in the population.
Not sure why that is and would have to do a PILE of research to
confirm it and try to identify the cause. I'm too busy arguing
with people who think that science is done by standing up in
front of a whole lot of ignorant people and uttering sophisms.
God is an evolutionist.
